There are probably people visiting Bless You Boys for the first time, looking with pity upon the embarrassed five-year-old whose artwork was placed upon the front page. But that's no work of a five-year-old. It's your 30something blog manager! I seriously do not know what you guys are thinking in begging for MS Paint recaps. But a good blog host knows that once in awhile you have to give the people what they want, and it's been a long time since the last one. So there it is. Enjoy my embarrassment.

I call it: Another Infield Blunder. You can assume that it's Brandon Inge if you want. But let's face it. That could just as easily be another second baseman on the team. In any case, that was probably a lot more enjoyable than being forced to read about the game, I hope.

For a nuts and bolts recap,

So I'm not going to spend a lot of time on other things. But a note before the Roars and Hisses. I wouldn't get too upset over anything that goes on in April. I know, people can always point out how one win would have made a difference at the end of the year. So they'll point out a win in April could have changed that. I guess it could. But really, I'm a lot more concerned about how the team plays during the final two months. Right now it's still the "learning about your team" part of the season. There's 145 games left. It's cool -- even if it sucks to watch.

Which it does.

3 Roars

Alex Avila - 430-foot home run

Miguel Cabrera - Fifth home run of the season

Prince Fielder - 2 hits, run

3 Hisses

Max Scherzer - 5 innings, 5 runs

Collin Balester - Usually effective, but a bit worrisome

Defense - Several uglies out there. Ick.
